Japanese Peace Garden opening ceremony – Broad Heath Noh performers impress!

What a wonderful day we have had! An event we have all been waiting so long for – the official opening of the peace garden at Coventry Memorial Park. The day started at the cathedral with our ambassadors greeting guests and then speeches by a number of people, including the Lord Mayor and the Ambassador of Japan.

Children from Broad Heath wowed the audience with their Noh performance – just brilliant!

We then moved on to the Memorial Park where our ambassadors spoke about the project and the garden was officially opened!

Well done to all the children who attended – we were proud of you all! Enjoy the video showcasing highlights of the day!

You clearly have been working on this for weeks and this is clear in what you have done, especially in Coventry Cathedral! I was intrigued to see the art exhibitions too! Brilliant to see the links with Hiroshima, a very important part in world history that should not be forgotten!
